Digital Photograph Campaign!

KHS has initiated a Digital Photograph Campaign! The purpose of the Digital Photograph Campaign is to collect and preserve contemporary photographs of the people, places, and organizations of Kenilworth. In addition to being a visual record, these photographs illustrate changes Kenilworth has undergone.

Photography has shifted dramatically to digital formats in the last 10 years, and KHS wants to make it easier for you donate these photographs. By donating your photographs to KHS we are able to grow out collection and fulfill our mission, to collect, preserve, and make available the history of the Village of Kenilworth.

• Email photographs to: khsassistantcurator@gmail.com
